    Synapse in steel

    Maybe I missed this, but is the Synapse not going to be available in steel anymore? It's not listed on the product page. If not, why not? Is the color being phased out completely?

    We've decided not to make the Synapse in Steel 1000d Cordura this time around, though we are going to continue to make Steel Dyneema/Solar Dyneema.
    Current Carry: Skookum Dog Citizen Canine, Founder's Briefcase, Synapse 19 (day hikes), Guide's Pack (longer day hikes), Yeoman Duffel (winter/emergency stuff for the car), Aeronaut 30 (travel), Night Flight Travel Duffel (camera bag), Moveable Feast + Shop Bags (food)

    I'm sorry to hear this! I'd been planning to buy one in the Steel/Steel color scheme that was available last year, but missed the boat - it had been replaced by Steel/Solar by the time I came back to order. Solar was just a little too bright for my tastes, so I've been checking back occasionally to see if a Steel Synapse with a more low-key interior had popped up again. Hopefully you guys will do something like that next time around.
